A Super Man Nonetheless

Remembering the Resilient Christopher Reeve

We pause to grieve
because Chris Reeve
just lost his earthly life.
This super man
had countless fans
and one heroic wife.
Chris let us see
he WAS a man of steel.
Though paralyzed
he realized
what matters most is will.
And though confined
he never whined
about his tragic plight.
He learned to cope
while boasting hope
that day would follow night.
But with the dawn
we learned he’d gone
unlike the way he’d planned.
His dream to walk
by death was blocked.
Still Chris WAS Superman.
